▍About Sword Art Online: Integral Factor
In Sword Art Online: Integral Factor, as a member of an Assault Team, players will work with others, navigating the challenges of being trapped within the game and striving to reach the 100th floor of Aincrad.
Players can interact with familiar characters and connect with the original SAO story from their own perspective. Exploring behind-the-scenes stories not seen in the original SAO, led to completely different story developments and a “what-if” scenario.
The battle system is designed to engage players in the sprawling fields of Aincrad, fighting alongside partner Koharu. Cooperation with Assault Teams across the land is vital to overcome powerful monsters and complete quests. Success in the game will depend on strategies such as forging stronger weapons, using skills with all kinds of effects, and preparing for each enemy’s weak points and attack patterns.
